Google Glass Assignment

For this assignment, you will need to focus. It is due at the end of class. You will have two grades for today – one for your assignment and one for your class performance (behavior). These will be your last grades of the mid-term. Do yourselves proud.

Please visit the Wikipedia article found here.   In another window, go to Google docs and record your answers to the following questions. When you first open your document, please share it with me before continuing. Doing so prevents a mad scramble to share at the end of class. Remember – Google docs saves automatically, so it will update your progress.

You will not have time to read the entire article. Look for the answers to your questions. Use complete sentences.
